'm comfortable talking about sources and methods. i think this is not a partisan issue. complacency is america's biggest enemy and al qaeda knows that. so if we have to be vigilant, our vigilance doesn't stop after a month, interesting thing from a foreign policy aspect, is president obama responsible for al qaeda's morphing and evolution. >> i don't know about that. >> maybe not. >> one of the reasons for the increased chatter here is a lot of these prisoners have escaped from where we have been holding them and we have been releasing them. so you have the abu ghraib prison break, morsi in egypt released about a thousand the other day, in afghanistan we have a program where we pay militants to leave the battlefield, they get to keep their guns, just have to sign the dotted line, say i am going to reintegrate into the community. >> they should do that for chicago. it might work. sundays, everybody knows i love to watch the sunday shows, i sit and record them just for this show. here is a montage of people talking about the terror threats. >> a threat to blow up an embassy, consulate or somethi
and the administration is absolutely right when they say they want and america wants inclusive tolerant institutions in egypt. the question is, how do build them, and we -- the way to build them is not to burn them down. that's why i think we should retain our strong rlelationship with the military. not because we condone it or agree with it, it's the only power in town. if we going rebuild egypts institution, it's better to rebuild from within than burn them down and start from scratch. simply put, the big state is better than no state. that's the only choice facing us nous. >> countries at odds with each other. israel and the non-secular people, the black costuming people, who really want a religious state's in people in northern ireland who want to be forever a part of britain and others who very much want to be a republic of ireland. here are here want sharia led, real islamic law, political power and other people who are just egyptians who want to live the way egyptians have lived for thousands of years. can they be co-habitating? is in a model for them to cohabitate that country? >> that's a q
